If you’ve grown complacent with summer festivals that boast packed bills but feature little to no interaction amongst the performers, the Indie Rock-friendly trio No Age, Deerhunter and Dan Deacon has an unusual antidote. In what sounds like a logistical nightmare, the acts — an Indie Punk two-piece, a gang of four kicking out artsy, psychedelic Post Punk and a one-man whirlpool of bizarre electronic vigor — will perform one set together. Sharing the stage of the Southgate House from the beginning of the concert until its conclusion, the multi-flavored bunch will trade off modified forms of old songs and collaborate on new experiments, round robin-style. How will this septet actually work together? What’s the format going to end up as? Will it end up as an enlightening mesh or an over-involved disaster? No clue! The uncertainty of the premise is what makes it so fascinating.
